No: "Pneumonia shot" has not been reported associated with gbs (Guillian-Barre syndrome) or aggravating existing one.

I am presuming....: that by "gbs" you mean gastric bypass surgery. There should be no problem receiving pneumonia vaccine. Having gastric bypass surgery would not require your husband to receive pneumonia vaccine; perhaps he has turned age 65 and is now eligible for routine immunization--PCV13 followed by PPSV23. Other indications include chronic heart/lung/kidney disease, immunocompromised conditions, etc.
